Angelina Jolie is a woman of strong will. She is a professional actress and model whose name has found its way to the top of countless ‘most beautiful women’ lists.
However, it seems Jolie is tired of using her beauty and acting skills for making those lists and wants to use it to rule a nation this time. But is she fit for this race? Well, to say the least, the woman in question has involved herself in activities that put her in favor of winning this race, come 2020.
It is inarguable that the 43-year-old star is beautiful inside and out. Her humanitarianism is not to be questioned because her various involvement in projects is evident to all. Jolie’s first contact with worldwide humanitarian crises was during the shoot of her blockbuster movie, ‘Tomb Raider’ in Cambodia.
As far back as 2001, Jolie has been in the field, meeting with refugees in 20 countries, including Kenya, Sri Lanka, Sierra Leone, Chad, Syria, Egypt, Jordan, Namibia, and many more.
Also, she went to Haiti to sympathize with the earthquake victims and help the survivors of the distart and subsequent conflicts.
That year, she was also named a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador at the UN headquarters in Geneva as a humanitarian spokesperson.
Angelina Jolie: Probable Mrs. President
In light of this revelation, her probability of winning the election shouldn't be ruled out. Jolie hinted at it during Friday's BBC Today's program that she may be considering running for the presidential seat.
The interviewer, Justin Webb, asked Jolie if she was moving in the direction of politics. She answered by stating that, unlike two decades ago when she would have ruled out the possibility, this time is different as she believes that she is needed in the political world. She explained that:
“I honestly will do whatever. I think can really make a change and right now I am able to work with a UN agency to do a lot of work directly with people in need."
Do people want Jolie as their president?
Considering her demeanor, it is supposedly safe to assume that she would be well accepted by the citizens of America, but a few Twitter handlers had a few things to say about her choice:
If she wants to get stuff done, she needs to run for a position to change the system that selects the candidates in the first place— PostStrewthFakeBlues (@StrewthBlues) December 28, 2018

Angelina Jolie has shown herself worthy as an actress, a mother and a humanitarian, and she's willing to add politician to the list.
Hopefully, she'll wow us as she has always done with her endeavors over the years. Would you love to have Angelina Jolie as your president?
